Important Housing Information

Students are required to reside in college residences and to dine on campus. Exceptions to these requirements are:

1. students may live at home with their parents in or near Danville;
2. married students are expected to arrange for their own off-campus housing and
3. some students who have reached senior status may apply for off-campus housing subject to permission from the Housing Office.

Students granted permission to live off campus are notified on or before August 1. Permission to be exempt from the campus meal plan is also determined by the Housing Committee and the Director of the Student Health Center.

Housing-Room Selection Procedures (PDF)

Your Room

Each double occupancy room has one set of twin beds that can be bunked, two desks, two closets, two mirrors, two dressers, and two desk chairs. All rooms are air conditioned. All rooms have mini-blinds. The College does not furnish lamps, linens, or other accessories. There are no single rooms for new students.
 
Decorating Rooms: All rooms are painted an off-white color. Students are not allowed to do anything to the interior that may damage the room (painting, driving nails, using flammable decorations, etc., is prohibited).

Your Roommate

There are two ways to determine roommate assignments. A student may choose to room with someone whom he or she knows by indicating the choice on the Roommate Selection Questionnaire. Both students must indicate this choice, or a student may be matched with a roommate based on this questionnaire, and the information provided by the Admission Office staff on each incoming student. The name, home address, and telephone number of each roommate is sent to the other in the summer so that contact can be made between the roommates.
 
Students are not permitted to switch rooms without written authorization from the Housing Office. Roommates are required to live together for the first six weeks of school. Resident Assistants are trained to assist students who are having difficulties living in a residence hall setting.

Damage Assessment

Before fall term begins, each room in every residence hall/house is checked for condition and inventory. The findings are recorded on a “room inventory/housing contract sheet” which each resident receives at check-in. It is important for each resident to review the sheet and check the room carefully to see if there are any additions to be made. The sheet must then be signed and returned to the RA immediately.
 
When the student checks out of the room, charges will be assessed for all damages or missing items from the room that are not noted on the “room inventory sheet.” “Room inventory sheets” not returned by the deadline will be assumed to be correct and the student will become responsible for any damages not noted on the original “room inventory sheet.” Any time a student vacates a room, whether switching rooms or leaving the College, a room inventory will be done. Residents should request a completed copy from their RA.

Beds

Students must use the beds provided by the College. All beds are twin sized and need extra long sheets. Most mattresses are 36” x 80.” Students are responsible for their own linens.
 
The Student Life Office has partnered with Residence Hall Linens to ensure that students can find XL twin sheets, comforters, matching towels, and storage items. The Value Pak has everything you need for campus living! Don’t forget—ordering from Residence Hall Linens ensures you have XL twin sheets that fit the extra long beds and guaranteed until graduation. Visit http://www.rhl.org/cen to see what is available.

Kitchens

There are kitchen areas in Acheson, Brockman Commons, Cheek, Cooper-Ganfield, Tyler-LaMotte, Stevenson-Vinson, Pearl, Stuart, Bingham, Evans, Nevin, and Yerkes. Most of these have stoves, refrigerators, microwaves and sinks. Students using the kitchens are responsible for cleaning up after themselves.

Residential Facilities

Resident Assistants and Directors

The Resident Assistant (RA) is a member of the Residence Life staff. Each hall/floor has at least one RA while some large halls/floors have two RAs. Residence Directors (RD), also members of the Residence Life staff, provide supervision of RAs and buildings/areas on campus. You should feel free to go to your RA with any issues you are having with your dorm room, roommate, or classes. RAs exist specifically to help you with any element of your time on campus that they can.
